"Whoever it was knew where to find things," recalls Chris Johnson. He manages a division of Navarro Lawn & Landscape but after a burglary he played amatuer detective and his work led to an arrest.

The Navarro buillding and industrial yard in Ralston was hit by at least one small person, "The window they got through was only about a foot and a half wide and we found small footprints in the mud," said Johnson.

Two snowblowers and two four wheel ATV's were loaded on to a company flat-bed trailer and then driven through a gate in a company truck.

Omaha Police located the stolen trailer near Roncalli High School just off 65th Street and Sorenson Parkway.

Click the video to see why that was enough information for Johnson to find some of the stolen property and, working with OPD, getting it all back.
